peninsula, that we knew that they sought to strike the united states and then that they were recruiting operatives to do so. the intelligence community did not aggressively follow-up on and prioritize particular streams of intelligence related to a possible attack against the homeland. second, this contributed to a larger failure of analysis. a failure to connect the dots of intelligence that existed across our intelligence community and which, together, could have revealed that abdulmutallab was planning an attack. third, this, in turn, fed into shortcomings in the watch-list system in resulted in this person not placed on the no-fly list, thereby, allowing him to board that plane in amsterdam for detroit. in sum, the u.s. government had the information scattered throughout the system to potentially uncover this plot and disrupt the attack. rather than a failure to collect or share intelligence, this was a failure to connect and understand the intelligence that we already had. and that's why we took swift action in the immediate days following christmas, including reviewing and updatin
